Security Guardian is already recognised as the Fort Knox of USB Flash Drives due to its ability to allow data to be deleted even when not connected to a laptop or the internet.
Security Guardian data protection and information security can now be further enhanced by the complete range of Becrypt CAPS, CESG and FIPS approved encryption products. This includes a range of encryption products that cover the complete spectrum of governemnt approved security levels as well as Trusted Client.
Trusted Client is a self-contained encrypted environment that allows employees to connect to an organisation’s network and data whilst preventing data loss and leakage. This secure isolated environment provides access to a corporation’s existing VPN infrastructure as well as backend applications such as Windows desktops and Microsoft applications.
Go further and control what devices can be used to connect to your laptops. In conjunction with Becrypt’s Advanced Port Control, you can prevent any unauthorised device connection except Security Guardian. This will mean that when data is transferred to a Security Guardian you will always know where it is, thanks to the embedded GPS System. Data on Security Guardian can be remotely deleted, even when not connected to a laptop, thanks to the internal battery.

There have been a lot of words written about the hacking of the RSA network and the possible breach of its seed generating system and possible customer compromise. Let’s face it, RSA has been seen to be a quality benchmark adopted by countless corporate organisations.
You can get a glimpse of the worry & concern felt by the IT Security and support teams by looking at the posts on The Register.
Clearly, the fact that RSA have a problem is one thing but what comes across clearly is that communication out to their thousands of customers has been slow, unconvincing and unhelpful. The proposed solution of disabling remote access suggests that many corporations should put their business on hold.
One can only wonder what would be the effect of having a mandatory disclosure clause inserted into the SLA so that companies would work with RSA to finds a way around the problem that enables business to learn collectively from events like this and implement agreed cross party solutions.
Are your affected by the RSA problem?

Laptop theft = Data Loss
Every laptop contains data. Some more sensitive than others. The recent laptop theft figures from the USA and the UK are staggering.
During 2010 some 637,000 laptop were reported stolen at US airports.
That is 1745 per day.
Over 400,000 were never recovered.
300,000 contained sensitive information of which over 200,000 had no data protection.
In the UK where we have fewer airports and travellers but the figures are also alarming. Heathrow alone accounted for 783 laptops lost / stolen per week during 2010.
Gatwick contributed a further 477 per week.
Just taking these two major International airports that is over 65,000 laptops per year.
Laptops, like mobile phones are easily replaced. What is more annoying, frustrating and damaging is the loss of the data, information and telephone numbers. In many cases the data held on the laptop or smartphone contains sensitive or personal information. If this data relates to third parties and in the wrong hands leads to fraud, blackmail or identity theft, the problems really start.
Protecting your mobile data is not difficult. Failure to do so is just stupid and possibly illegal under the data protection acts.
There are a range of solutions available from standard encryption products to products such as Security Guardian that will help protect your valuable data by encrypting your data, tracking where it is and allowing you to delete the data remotely. Taking action now could save you getting a thumping great fine.
